Botswana’s prize possession, one of the seven natural wonders of Africa and the largest inland delta on the planet is the majestic Okavango. Named “the river that never finds the sea” by locals, this unspoilt gem is a highly recommended region to visit when exploring Botswana.
It is truly a standout feature when it comes to untouched nature at its best and is one of the biggest highlights in Southern Africa for a clear reason. It recently was named a World Heritage Site in 2014 for its drainage systems that do not occur near an ocean but instead in the Kalahari Desert. It is home to many endangered animals such as the African Wild Dog, white and black rhinos, cheetahs and lions. Activities include fishing, guided game walks, night and day time safaris, Mokoro rides, scenic flights as well as boat excursions. Accommodation varies from tented camps to safari lodges on the edge of the delta, so there is a place to stay for any sort of budget.
